Ahead of the crucial Punjab polls, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday launched a scathing attack on the state’s Congress and SAD, alleging that both the parties have “ruined” every household there through “corruption” and “drug menace”.
Kejriwal in his tone and tenor indicated that drug issue in Punjab is going to be major poll plank and claimed that his party is “going to win the elections” in the state due in 2017.
The AAP leader was addressing a gathering here after launching a Punjabi video song “Ek Nasha: Nashe ke Khilaf” penned and sung by fellow AAP leader Kumar Vishwas, aimed at weaning the people of the state away from drugs and narcotics.
The video makes veiled references to Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal and his deputy Sukbhir Badal. Though Kejriwal said the purpose of the video was “apolitical”, a “broom” has been shown in the video in the end. “You see poets like Vishwas tell things through clues. And, you see what clues he has left in the video,” Kejriwal said, as he took a dig at the Badal dispensation.
“But, the enthusiasm you people have shown here, we are finding the same enthusiasm in Punjab, and the AAP will win the elections there and for the next government...The issue of eliminating drug menace will be a daunting task but it won’t be impossible,” Kejriwal claimed.
